    SafeDri Sump Pump Upgrade Will Keep a Basement Dry in Proctorville, OH

    After living in his house for two years, a homeowner in Proctorville, OH, was becoming concerned with the condition of the existing sump pump system.

    The system is approximately 10 years old. While nothing major was wrong with it, the homeowner noticed the metal sump pit starting to deteriorate and sediment was accumulating. The system also lacked a lid, which can allow water in the pit to evaporate back into the basement. Debris and other objects also could fall in and damage or clog the system.

    The homeowner wanted to make sure he would have a reliable system to always keep the basement dry, so he contacted Ohio Basement Authority after learning more about us online. We upgraded the older metal system to a newer plastic-based system that will not rust or corrode. The reliable SafeDri Battery Back-up system will always work to keep the basement dry.

    Additional waterproofing solutions that were installed included an FreezeGuard attached to the exterior sump pump discharge line, new downspout conductor lines, and YardWell outlets to camouflage the ends of these lines. The open crawl space vents also were sealed with exterior vent covers.

    The owner now has peace of mind knowing these reliable installations have helped him create a safer and healthier home that he will be able to enjoy for many more years to come.

    SafeDri Triple Sump Pump and Exterior Drainage Upgrade in Lancaster, OH

    While they have lived in their house for three years, homeowners in Lancaster, OH, recently began to consider how effective their existing sump pump was. They questioned if it would be able to withstand a great amount of seeping water, and they were interested in upgrading it to a newer system. They also noticed issues with their downspouts and exterior drainage.

    The owners began to research how to address these issues, and they contacted Ohio Basement Authority after finding information about our company online. They were motivated to contact us to learn more about how we could help them, and they then met with Inspector John Dean. John evaluated the condition of their existing systems, and he recommended upgrading to the “king” of sump pumps – the SafeDri Triple system.

    Foreman Jose De Jesus Tellez Ortiz and his crew then removed the older sump pump and installed the SafeDri in its place. The SafeDri, complete with three powerful pumps inside the liner and an external backup battery, will always operate to pump water out of the basement.

    Field Supervisor Adam Kuhns and his crew also updated the exterior drainage system around the home by installing new downspout conductor lines.

    The homeowners are happy to have new interior and exterior waterproofing systems that will keep their home dry.

    Replacing an Old Sump Pump with a SafeDri System will Help Keep a Basement Dry in Pickerington, OH

    After living in their house for 10 years, homeowners in Pickerington, OH, started to notice problems with their basement waterproofing system. There seemed to be some issues with the sump pump and basin.

    The sump pump system in the 30-year-old house is tucked away in a small closet area in the basement. While it is essentially out of sight, the homeowners didn’t want to have to worry about problems with the sump pump affecting the rest of the basement and house. Thinking proactively, they wanted to have the system replaced to prevent any potential damage.

    After speaking to a trusted friend, the homeowners knew they could count on Ohio Basement Authority for the perfect solution. This friend was pleased with exterior drainage work we previously completed on his property, so he was eager to refer our expert inspectors and crews.

    After meeting with one of our inspectors, the homeowners were eager for one of our crews to upgrade their sump pump system. We installed the more reliable SafeDri to handle any seeping water. Along with two powerful pumps inside the liner, the SafeDri features an external backup battery. This ensures the system will continue to operate even when the power goes out. This system can pump more than 11,000 gallons of water on a new, fully-charged battery.

    The homeowners now have peace of mind knowing their basement and home will be protected by this trustworthy solution.

The causes of a wet basement

Did you know you can have water issues in your basement without heavy rains or obvious standing water? It’s easy enough to see water coming through a crack in your floor or basement wall, but what’s the real cause of your basement water problem?

The Clay Bowl Effect

Excavated soil that’s replaced around a completed foundation isn’t as dense and tightly packed as undisturbed soil farther away. As a result, water collects in the soil immediately surrounding the house, putting pressure on foundation walls and causing cracks.

Hydrostatic Pressure

As soil around your foundation becomes soaked with moisture, it expands and puts pressure on your foundation. The water will then work its way through any opening available, including cracks and openings around pipes or windows.
